Book Review: Del Kathryn Barton's The Nightingale And The RoseCelebrating the extraordinary collaboration between two-time Archibald Prize winner Del Kathryn Barton and acclaimed filmmaker Brendan Fletcher, this exhibition traces the remarkable adaptation of Oscar Wilde's 19th-century classic into a hauntingly beautiful animated film. This free exhibition transforms the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum space into an immersive and intricate Barton-inspired world: colourful, bold, enchanting, brooding and revealing. The film itself is a landmark in contemporary moving image, voiced by some of Australia's most celebrated actors, including Mia Wasikowska, David Wenham and Geoffrey Rush, and layered with a stirring score by Australian singer-songwriter Sarah Blasko. Audiences can view the minute animation within the exhibition space, and then make their way through a lush display of objects and artworks that explore the incredible workings behind this production linking classic text to canvas, sculpture to screen. Also on display, is a selection of stunning and never-before-seen handmade props, material from the animation archival material, and a edition of Wilde's anthology. The publishing house asked Barton in to reimagine a timeless fairytale in her signature aesthetic and technique.

Fletcher says that while the book was itself rich in cinematic potential, Barton's lusciously illustrated version of Wilde's story came into being in after she was approached by publisher Elenora Triguboff to do a fairy story that would appeal across generations. Julie Flake marked it as to-read Oct 25, he and Barton were anxious to ensure the animation felt "passionate and emotionally moving and guttural"?Monica Toohey added it Oct 12, but I connect to the story as one of transcendence and ecstasy through commitment to one's beliefs, The Nightingale and the Rose has a run-time of only 14 minutes.

The Nightingale is brought to life by both some truly spectacular voice work by Mia Wasikowskaas well as a wordless but garton resonating singing voice provided by Sarah Blasko. It took them more than two years to make the minute animation. Would highly recommend as a gift.
